Mostly cloudy skies, mid-50s forecast Friday ahead of weekend rain

Mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid-50s are forecast in the Baltimore area Friday, before rain chances move in for the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight lows were expected in the mid-30s. Winds are expected to be calmer than Thursday, but could pick up to 15-20 mph in the afternoon and evening.

Light rain is expected to move in early Saturday, likely continuing throughout the day. About a quarter of an inch of rain was forecast. Temperatures are expected to drop to the mid-40s overnight Friday and to not rise far from there during the day, with highs Saturday in the upper 40s.

For northern parts of the region, in Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties along the Mason-Dixon Line, a dusting of snow could mix in early Saturday morning. The weather service is forecasting less than an inch in those areas, as a "clipper" system passes by to the north.

Mostly cloudy skies are expected by Saturday night and through Sunday, with lows in the mid-30s and highs in the upper 40s.

A chance of rain could return Sunday night and continue through Monday and Tuesday, with highs remaining in the upper 40s.
